Cemetery Mapping Software
Convert Cemetery Transcriptions To Maps
The CemMapper is an add-on to the CemEditor that
will create grid maps of the entered cemetery.
With correct entry the software will display the
cemetery in multiple 9 X 9 grids, showing the
names on each stone which will allow those
viewing a stone of interest to easily see names
on the surrounding stones. By clicking on the
name/stone detailed transcription information
will be displayed. This is a good tool for
recording endangered cemeteries.
The cemetery mapping software is not difficult to
use, but does require some more detail recording
the transcriptions at the cemetery.
The Mapping Worksheet can be
downloaded and printed. It is provided to help
in recording the position of the existing
stones/graves. Empty graves do not have to be
entered for the CemMapper. If the positions
are entered correctly the software will
produce the map and "know" where the empty
graves are. The following example: Louth-Fissel-Haver Cemetery
Mapped was produced using the CemMapper.
For more information about entering data for
the CemMapper please see the Mapping Guide.
Like the CemEditor and CemViewer the CemMapper
will work with or without pictures. This software
will work great as an on site method to view
cemetery transcriptions or maps of a cemetery at
a historical society, share with family members,
or use in a genealogy society's library.
It works with or without pictures, however
when photos are included, these transcriptions
become a valuable resource to researchers as well
as an excellent way to preserve a cemetery.
If placing the transcriptions on a CD he only
real limit of data to be published on the CD is
the CD size of 700mb. A CD should easily hold
over 5,000 names and 10,000 to 15,000 pictures
with a normal resolution picture sized at 640 X
480 which is about 68kb per photo. Larger photos
will work too.
If you a already have the information entered in
a program that can export as CSV you can import
it directly into the CemEditor and then by adding
information to the Zone and ZonePosition fields
the information can be used by the cemetery
mapping software to create a simple grid map of
the cemetery. CSV is a format many popular word
processors, databases and spreadsheets can save
or export to.
